Love is Patient
Once upon a time, The Dingo noticed he was losing his patience in different ways which resulted in fussy and rude behavior and he did not like this one bit.
The Dingo vowed to always walk in love as best as he knew how towards everybody and losing his patience definitely was not a good example of this. If there was one thing The Dingo knew, it was that “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”* and it was definitely time to do something about it.
First, he started by looking up the word “patient” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary and found this definition:
- able to remain calm and not become annoyed when waiting for a long time or when dealing with problems or difficult people
- done in a careful way over a long period of time without hurrying
After reading this The Dingo realized that being patient means more than just thinking about himself, it means thinking about others. It’s thinking about how a rude and fussy attitude could make someone else feel bad, it’s recognizing that others are worth our time and investment and most of all it’s about showing the same love and patience that we would expect under similar circumstances.
As you can see from the illustration above, The Dingo decided to practice patience with his inquisitive little guy by reading him a book called “How to Love Cats.” It’s important for The Dingo to not only talk the talk but he also knows the importance of walking the walk because you never know who’s watching and learning from your example.
